In India, the month of March is dedicated to celebrating Holi, a festival that ushers in spring and ushers out the cold, dark days of winter. Due to the fact that the main ritual entails smearing colors on each other and then throwing water at them, the entire country takes on a kaleidoscopic haze, and the streets are usually packed with revelers. The message of love and brotherhood is carried aloft by a kaleidoscope of colors, transcending the barriers of class, race, and religion.
In Indian culture and tradition, every color has its own meaning. And the watchmaking industry has been pretty staid when it comes to its use of color for many years. While classic colors like white, silver, and black remain popular, some watch buyers seek out brighter hues for a more eye-catching accessory. And in this day and age, you’re not restricted to just a dial. However, there is more on the way! How about some colorful water-resistant watches?
Here are our picks for the top 5 luxury watches this Holi!
1. Rolex Rainbow Cosmograph Daytona
The Rolex Rainbow Daytona is a highly sought-after luxury watch known for its vibrant and colorful design. The watch features a 40mm case made of 18k Everose gold, which is a unique alloy that Rolex uses in its watches. The case is water-resistant up to 100 meters. The bezel of the Rainbow Daytona is set with 36 baguette-cut sapphires that are arranged in a rainbow pattern, starting from red and ending with violet. The hour markers on the dial are also set with colored gemstones, which match the colors on the bezel. The dial itself is made of black lacquer, which provides a striking contrast to the colorful gemstones. With all the colors on your wrist, what more do you need?
2. Omega Seamaster Diver 300M
Omega’s renowned Seamaster Diver 300M series stands out thanks to its striking green color. The 42 mm timepiece not only has all the features you need for ocean dives, but it also looks great when you’re just hanging out in the city. Attach it to a green rubber or metal bracelet. Behind the sapphire crystal of this Diver’s face is a dial made of polished green ceramic with laser-engraved waves, creating the illusion of depth. One of the many useful functions is a date window located at 6 o’clock.
The bezel of the watch can be turned in either direction and is made of polished green ceramic with a white enamel diving scale. The white Super-LumiNova dot at 12 o’clock allows you to keep tabs on your dive time.
3. Hublot Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic

The flange, indexes, minute and seconds counters, Arabic numerals, and hands are all in this sunny yellow, which further highlights the workings of the Unico HUB1280 manufacture movement and its column wheel that are visible on the dial side through the sapphire crystal. The brightness continues right down to its lined and structured yellow rubber strap: the Big Bang Unico Yellow Magic is here to help you enjoy the sunny side of life! With this bright and sunny yellow ceramic, Hublot is continuing to write the story of innovation, by continually reinventing material. With a rubber strap, this watch is just the perfect companion!
